Steve Cassar
Senior Executive Producer

Steve has worked in television news for 35 years. Most of that time has been spent in Canada’s largest media market at the country’s biggest broadcasters.
From reporting and producing to becoming a News Director and Executive Producer, Steve has held several roles throughout his career. After 25 years in local television news at Global and CTV, Steve transitioned to network sports where he oversaw a large national news operation at Sportsnet. Steve also had the privilege and thrill of working four Olympic Games and Olympic Winter Games, most recently at Beijing 2022 as a Supervising Producer.

Throughout the years, the tie that binds those many projects together has been Steve’s passion and instinctive ability to recognize stories that stick and craft a narrative that matters.
“I’ve had the good fortune of working with high performing teams. When groups are like minded, and have shared goals, the energy is really difficult to match. That’s what I see and feel at Story Studio Network.”
Whether it’s newsmakers, public sector agencies or private business, Steve has supported and helped identify their terrific stories.
